Rather impressive, the porter element of thing definitely holds up the front end with some slightly smokey, roasted/chocolate malt sweetness, and the finish has some lingering spice that turns up a notch after a bit. It gets to be a bit too spicy, and I say this as someone who has eaten ghost chilies and whole habanero peppers. Still very good, but glad I had 2 friends to share with.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle from WLV Liquors. Thick black with a creamy beige head. Chipolte nose burnt malts sweet smoky BBQ aroma. A good amount of that sweet BBQ smoky chipolte aroma. Chipolte sweet chocolate roasted malt flavors. Alcohol seems too apparent for 6.6%, too sweet, oddly bitter and ashy. I guess I like my habenero sauce, but this could use a bit more of a kick. 7/4/7/4/14

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted from bottle with grateful thanks to sunevdj. It was very kind of him to bring me this all the way from Denmark and greatly appreciated.
Deep, dark black with just the slightest touch of a russet colour in the dimple with a coffee coloured head that sat thickly to the sides of the glass. Smells deeply of chocolate malt, molasses and coffee with just a hint of green chilli there. In the mouth it is thick, viscous, oily and silky and after the first sophisticated chocolate malt flavour there’s a fiery onslaught of chilli heat. It isn’t overwhelming, but you know it’s there. Black coffee starts to come to the party along with a gentle fizz that makes itself known. The mature dark flavours and the chilli endure for an age. A remarkable beer and one I’ll remember.

Butelka, warka do 18/01/20. wysoka ciemna piana, niebrzydka, ciemno brazowe piwo. aromaty glownie czekolada, i to urozmaicona, w sensie a la bombonierka, z marcepanem, karmelem, owocami kandyzowanymi i jakimis innymi tego typu nutami. do tego dochodzi nieco zywicznosci, ciut a la black ipa. w ustach niby jest analogia, ale faktycznie papryczki szybko przejmuja kontrole, w posmakach juz dominujac. niemalo ciala, niewielkie wysycenie, nieco popolowa konsystencja. klasa.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
BOTTLE 33 CL. Opaque black, espresso head. At just 6,6, the aroma is of a „big” impy - rich sweet dark chocolate and cocoa, coffee and molasses. Notes of spicy chilies and, especially, some smoke. The taste follows the aroma (though, it is not as big): classic chocolate/cocoa, the sweetness is easily balanced by burnt woody notes as well as roasty acidity ans light grassy hops. You can barely feel the heat of the chilies. Medium, smooth body. Very good.

4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
750 ml. bottle- Pours pitch black with a nice creamy mocha tan head and spiderweb lacing, beautiful beer. The aroma is very chocolatey with a spiciness in the background, peppery. The flavor is peppery up front, followed by chocolate, then smoky peppers (chipotles) and wood, very interesting. There is a definite jalapeno burn, especially in the back of the throat, this is one of the most interesting beers I have had in a long time, very experimental. The body is thick like chocolate milk, carbonation is low, finish is long, and spicy. Overall I haven’t had a beer that I was blown away like this in a long time, a winner for sure, or to quote Charlie Sheen "Winning". Loved it.

Sample thanks to Armin. Dark chocolate brown pour, little carbonation and an aroma of chipotle peppers(and nothing else.) Flavor is light malt, spicy chipotle peppers and a nice smokey heat that lingers. Very good for a chili beer!
